In March EngineersWithout Borders (EWB)held a gala called Water and Wine:A Toast to Global Water Security, tofundraise for their Junior Fellowsprogram. The gala offered interactiveactivities and served as a wayto inform the audience of waterissues at both a local and internationallevel.Despite the similarity in thename, EWB is not affiliated withDoctors Without Borders. EWB is aCanadian organization, and is representedby both university andprofessional chapters. EWB worksinternationally to provide sanitizedwater access to developing countries.At the moment, they workin four countries: Malawi, Ghana,Burkina Faso and, recently, Uganda.“With the name, Engineers WithoutBorders, sort of on that line,we’re trying to take the engineerapproach to problems,” said KaelaShea, who will be vice president ofthe Guelph chapter of EWB in thefollowing year. “We try to find creativesolutions that are sustainableand fix the problem for good.”EWB takes a fully rounded approachto tackling water issues.They recognize that it’s not just thephysical solution of providing wateraccess, but integrating this solutioninto the community that makesit effective. That’s why EWB alsoworks to provide education, andpartners with local organizationswhile developing their projects. Theorganization consists of long-termstaff members, and Junior Fellowschosen from EWB’s universitychapters.“If you just dig a well, stuff couldgo wrong with it,” said Shea. “If thepeople aren’t taught to maintain it,then they’ll just end up being worseoff. It’s a cycle that we’re trying tobreak.”The Water and Wine gala is thebiggest event hosted by the Guelphchapter of EWB. The event servesnot only as a fundraiser, but alsoas a way to raise awareness aboutthe complexity of water issues.Although EWB works internationally,its guest speakers brought itback to a local level. The audienceheard from Mike Nagy, the currentChair of Wellington Water Watchers,who spoke about the actions takenevery day to address the global watercrisis; Dr. Khosrow Farabakhsh, engineeringprofessor at the Universityof Guelph, talked about water issuesin Canada, specific to First Nationcommunities; and Jordan Daniow,a long term staff member in Malawi.Shea stressed that you don’t needto be an engineer to join EWB, andthat it is an interest-based organization.Due to the wide range ofservices it provides, the organizationalso attracts a lot of people inInternational Development. Studentsare interested in joined EWBare encouraged to attend chaptermeetings in the fall.Fighting back against exam stressAlicja GrzadkowskanewsGerrit AtkinsonEngineers Without Borders held a Water and Wine gala to raise money for its Junior Fellows Program,and raise awareness about water security.With exam season in full swing,students may be faced with thehighest stress levels of the semesteras they focus on finishing theircourses successfully. The Universityof Guelph McLaughlin Libraryhoped to ease students’ sufferingas they entered the final week ofthe school year through the SpringFever Workshops that ran from Mar.29 to Apr. 12.The free workshops were first introducedduring the winter examperiod as a way to provide stressrelieffor students.“We had read about other universitylibraries in North Americathat offered such programmingand wanted to try something atour library,” said Robin Bergart,an associate librarian who helpedorganize the workshop. “Whenthe anxiety level seems to risethrough pre-exam and exam weeks,we wanted to ease the pressure withsome surprise and fun, as well asstrategies students could use to feelbetter.”This semester, through a varietyof workshops to choose from, studentscould learn about yoga-basedrelaxation tricks with instructorsfrom the Athletic Centre, and getnutritional tips and healthy recipesfrom Lindzie O’Reilly, a dieticianfrom Student Health Services. Studentscould also talk one-on-onewith Melanie Bowman from theWellness Centre about their stress.Kathy Somers, from the StressMarianne PointnerThe McLaughlin Library is helping students beat the stress of examsand end of the year assignments with its Spring Fever Workshops.Management and High PerformanceClinic, led the “How to Let it Go”workshops this semester.“My particular session focusedon ‘how to let it go’ when students’exams are close together,”said Somers. “I showed how in threeminutes, you can change whereyour brain is at, and let go of stressfollowing an exam more easily andquickly, rather than going homeand hoping it will pass.”Though many sessions were focusedon providing helpful lifestyletips, workshops which were centeredon food were also available forstudents, and gained much popularitythroughout the weeks.“This week we [had] a differentsnack break every day in the ForsterRoom including a Make-Your-OwnSundae event, which is sponsoredby CSA,” said Bergart. “The mostpopular events are food-relatedand we think that’s because they’requick and easy, and who doesn’tlike free food? We’ve overheard studentseating their newly-decoratedcookie or licking their sundae, say:‘This is the best day in the libraryever!’”The workshop series is plannedto occur again in December. Bergartand her team hope to includenew activities in upcoming sessions.“Some ideas we have for futureevents are chair massages, therapydogs, and a primal scream event,”said Bergart, giving students muchto look forward to.

It’s strangeto think that in the age of the Internetand an ungodly number oftelevision channels the radio canprovide something other formsof mass communication cannot.I believe there’s a place for theradio alongside the more modernsmart phones and tablets, atleast, for me.Historically, the radio hasserved as an implement in thedispersal of information; it stillserves this purpose today. Music,news, weather, opinions, andmore are available for free onpublic airwaves. Fortunately, thefederal government recognizesthe value of this, and since 1971the Canadian Radio-televisionand Telecommunications Commission(CRTC) has mandated apercentage of broadcasted materialmust be created by Canadians.Today, that percentage is up to40 per cent, something Canadianmusicians often credit in showcasingCanadian talent within thecountry. However, the presentationof Canadian content is notisolated to musical endeavours.My favourite use of the radiois not to listen to music or news.No, my radio rarely wavers from590 on the AM dial between Apriland October. It’s baseball season,and as a lifelong fan of theToronto Blue Jays, the radio hasbecome my link to the boys inblue. While nothing compares tobeing in the Roger’s Center (read:SkyDome), the radio broadcastsof Jerry Howarth, Alan Ashby,and Mike Wilner help bring thegame to life like no other medium,my apologies to Buck Martinezand company on the televisionbroadcasts, I just can’t standGregg Zaun.The emotion and expertise ofthe radio broadcasters help toflesh out the game, giving thethree-plus hour affairs some lifethat’s often lost in the televisionbroadcast. Baseball’s a lot morefun with other people, and thecrew makes you feel like you’resitting in the booth right therewith them.A few weeks ago I went out andbought a portable AM/FM radiothat runs off of two AA batteries.For the few months that I’ll bewalking around the farm all day,that radio will serve as my link tothe baseball team I grew up with;not a terrible way to spend $30.Baseball is something that’srooted in tradition, just ask fansof the National League how theyfeel about the designated hitter.The Blue Jays recognized thisand ditched the awful uniformsfrom recent years in favour ofan updated return to the classicuniforms the team began with in1977. Something new from somethingold seems to be the themefor this year’s season, and howbetter to follow it than on a radio?While some get excited aboutthe chorus of a favourite song, I’llbe listening to Rasmus diving fora fly-ball into the gap, or Escobarand Johnson turning two, andnaturally, Jose Bautista steppinginto the batter’s box.It’s baseball season everyone,so dust off the dial and crank it upto ten, and of course, Go Jays Go.Ontarion ArchivesCourtesy
sports & HealthStudent Health 101 orstudent health MIA?Sasha Odesse“While there isan abundanceof valuableinformation inonline magazineslike this one, andmany benefits ofattending eventsat the Health andWellness Centre,few are awarethey even exist.”Unbeknownst to many, the Universityof Guelph releases a freeonline Health and Wellness magazineevery month. Despite itactually being a well functioningand informative online magazine,few students actually knowabout it. And while the CSA alertsstudents to its monthly publication,many would agree that itoften gets lost or overlooked inthe Student Affairs Newsletter,which seems to be more of a nuisancethan anything else. Thoughthe CSA should look into otherways of alerting students to theevents and ongoing activities oncampus, the Health and Wellnessmagazine titled Student Health101 is actually worth your time.The magazine is actually quiteinclusive, covering a wide rangeof topics from your typical articlessurrounding nutrition andfitness, to articles on safer sexand mental health. This month’sissue also features useful info oninterviews, on “summer toneups”and even has a sectioncalled Ucookbook that lists tastybut healthy dessert recipes.The one downfall of the magazineis that it’s not tailored toU of G students or any Canadianuniversity for that matter.Interviews with students attendingschools in the states arestill easy to relate to, but couldbe much more effective if the Uof G created their own similaronline magazine. Few studentsare aware of the events that theHealth and Wellness Centre offerseven though their websitehas improved significantly. Onlystudents who actively search outthis info will find it. Similarly,Gryphon events are advertisedminimally with the small flashingGryphon board outside thearena providing little informationto students who happen towalk by. Surely there is a moreeffective way of informing studentsof the on-goings at theAthletic Centre and Health andWellness Centre.The University of Guelph isnot lacking in valuable healthseminars or outlets for studentswith health and wellness relatedissues, but they are howeverlacking in how they share thisinformation with students. Likethe Student Health 101magazine,there is plenty of valuable materialand events being overlooked.Students, take the time tocheck out the link included inyour CSA newsletter for StudentHealth 101 and you may actuallybe surprised at the useful stuffyou find there.Exam stress? Look into yogaBreathing andmeditation can helplower stressDuncan Day-MyronExam stress is something moststudents have to cope with atthe end of each semester. Withthe amount of reading, coffeeand sleepless nights, it’s easy toget overwhelmed at this time ofyear. There’s plenty of ways tohelp combat the stress, but onestudents often overlook is yoga.Jeff Martineau is a yoga teacherwho works at Moksha Yoga,located on Norfolk St. in downtownGuelph, one of the manyyoga studios throughout the cityof Guelph. Martineau is a recentgraduate and is well-versed inexams and the stress that comeswith them.“I did my yoga teacher trainingduring my fourth year,” Martineausaid. “My stress wentdown and my GPA went up whenI started practicing yoga everyday, personally.”Yoga is a form of meditation,and like many other types ofmeditation, involves focus andbreathing exercises, which canhelp relax a practitioner.“Any kind of meditation ormindfulness will help withstress. Yoga’s just more accessibleto the western mindset, todo some sort of movement,” saidMartineau.Although movement andstretching is part of the appealfor many people who give yogaa shot, it isn’t necessarily whatcan help combat stress.“Breathing is the biggestpart,” said Martineau. “If youcan slow down your breathing,[and] become more attentive toyour breath– just like Lamazeclass– you can breath throughanything if you learn how to doit right. It helps with the wholestress response thing. You cankind of slow down or counteractthe stress response with therelaxation response if you’rebreathing and being mindful oftaking one step at a time.”There are many places in townto get into yoga, whether at ayoga studio or even right oncampus at the Athletics Centre.Many of them offer drop inclasses, so it’s good to call aheadand find out just what might beavailable and what equipmentyou might need to bring.167.13 ◆ april 12th, 20129CourtesyPhoto caption.Natalie Costa
Robocall scandal: Pierre PoutineBeth Purdon-McLellanThe media has been abuzz for the last severalmonths about the robocall scandalthat took place during the federal electionsin October, 2011. On the day of the electionapproximate 6,700 calls were madeto Guelph residents telling them that pollingstations had been moved to differentlocations. When voters showed up at thenew location, they found out that they hadbeen tricked.Initially, the blame had been placed onMichael Sona, a former student at the Universityof Guelph. Sona had previouslybeen accused of steeling polling boxes atan advanced poll set up at the UniversityCentre. He resigned from his job as communicationsdirector with a ConservativeParty MP shortly after the scandal broketo the media, although he refused to claimresponsibility for the robocalls.However, since then, the calls made inthe Guelph area have traced to a cell phonelisted under the name Pierre Poutine.

After finishing their regularseason with five solid victories the team wenton to win the OUA championship for the thirdyear in a row, then the Monilex Trophy at theCIS National championship at Trent, wherethey shutout the reigning national champions,St. Francis Xavier– all of this occurring ina mere matter of months. Recently the teamalso took gold at the National Invitational UniversitySevens Rugby championship in BritishColumbia, where they blanked their opponentswith a score of 205 points to none. The Gryphonsallowed a small sum of 37 points to be scoredagainst them in their 11 season games, whilethey went on to score a devastating 714 points.As an extra cherry on top, veteran athlete JaceyMurphy was awarded CIS player of the year, aswell as Gryphon athlete of the year.Dominating on every field and over everyteam they encountered, this golden rugby teamhas raised the bar to the highest notch and leftall spectators in sublime awe and proud to be aGryphon.Sports & HealthStory of the YearGuelpDuncan DayThe changes tothis year wereyear for manyThe muchsitsystem we1, when manyfrom Guelph fopart of the Cisit Growth Stmotion July 20put in place aing a long-tercommission toneeds of the gboth the cityexpand in popAlthough intimprovementmany riders wthe new routOntarion spoon the lackmunication, ainefficiently scifically busIronwood andmore frequentIn light of friders, modificmonths of its lserve College Alated mostly byChanges weroute was plaglonger than that major transiGuelph Tranfuture.

The first step is to gather thephotos you would like compiled intoa panorama. Here are some things tokeep in mind when shooting:- Take between 4-12 photos. Anyless and your panorama will notcover enough range, any morephoto 2and the file size will be difficult toprocess.- Make sure to stand in a stationaryposition, only rotate to captureyour images.- Leave a little overlay while shooting,it is recommended that theoverlap on each consecutive imageshould be about 40 per cent.- Remember to ensure that eachphoto is in focus. With panoramasI usually suggest to set yourlens to autofocus, which ensuresless movement to adjust the focusmanually.2. When you have your imagesprepared, select all the files andopen them in Photoshop.3. Choose from the Menu bar:File Automate Photomerge.4. The Photomerge dialoguebox will appear. Select “Add openfiles,” set the Layout to “Auto.” Ensurethat both the “Blend ImagesTogether” and “Vignette Removal”options have been selected andpress OK.5. Photoshop will merge eachimage into layers of a new document.They will show each layer with it’sprospective layer mask in the Layersoption box, and your compiledimage will appear.(See Phots 1 and 2 Below)6. Thefinal step is to use the crop tool(keyboard shortcut C) to trim yourpanorama into a rectangle:(See Photo 3 below)A great thing about the panoramaeffect is that it changes so muchwith the location that you chooseto shoot.

www.theontarion.com14 lifeHorsemeat, Bill C-322 and youDuncan Day-MyronOne of the main motivations forwriting this column over the pastsemester has been both a way to expoundon the different foods I enjoy,but also an opportunity to try newthings under the guise of needingto do it for work– regardless of itseffects on my pocketbook. (Oxtailisn’t cheap, people.)From the very first article, oneof the things I wanted to eat andwrite about was horsemeat. I havespent the past four months searchinghigh and low for fresh or frozen,uncooked horsemeat to cook andeat, with little to no luck.It might be getting a lot harder,too. Currently on its way throughParliament is Bill C-322, draftedby NDP MP for British Columbia’sSouthern Interior, Alex Atamanenko.The bill seeks to end both theimport and export of horses forslaughter for human consumption.Despite its relative scarcity,which– trust me– is true both in theGuelph area and the GTA, the horsemeatindustry is no small potatoes.While approximately 300 tonnes ofthe meat are consumed per year inCanada, which works out to aboutnine grams per person (considerthat an eight ounce steak is about227 grams), as a nation we slaughterand export over 15,000 tonnesof the meat to Europe, Asia, Mexicoand South America.The majority of the horsemeateaten in Canada is eaten in Quebec,where it is far more common andwidely accepted. The taboo againstGreen tea mojitoBy Abigel LemakHello thirsty readers! In light ofupcoming exams and the endof another school year, here’s arefreshing mojito recipe to helpyou celebrate! A mojito providesthe perfect blend of citrus, spiceand sweetness, and the greentea allows for a mellow base onwhich to fuze all those flavourstogether. I’ll be using a jasminegreen tea for that extra floral note.You need lots of fresh mint for thisrecipe so don’t skimp! Fresh mintis available at almost any grocerystore and plagues most garden’sonce successfully grown.Ingredients (for one serving):hand-full of fresh mint2-3 limes1/2 C green tea (cooled)1/2 C carbonated water2-3 tbsp sugar1/2 C crushed iceHow to:Take a tall glass and fill it withmint, sugar and the green tea. Besure to steep the tea less than youit exists almost exclusively in theEnglish-speaking world.One of the main motivators forthe ban, as stated in the bill itself, isthat horses “are ordinarily kept aspets for sporting and recreationalpurposes.” But why would this everbe relevant?This seems like an utterly misguidedattempt at championinganimal rights. What it does far morethan defend the rights of horses istrivialize the rights and wellbeingof all the other animals we regularlyconsume as food.If you are going to argue in favourof the rights of animals, youmust do so for all animals. You can’tcherry pick which animals are foodand which ones aren’t: if you eatmeat, then any animal should befair game. There is nothing aboutcows or horses that makes them intrinsically“food.” Just as there isnothing about horses that meansthat they are not food. Their otheruses and peoples inexplicable attachmentto them as a companiondoes not mean that they absolutelycannot be used for food.The Canadian Horse DefenseCoalition is a group that has championedthis bill, and brought theirconcerns to restaurateurs acrossthe GTA who are known for servinghorsemeat. One of the issues theyconsistently raise is the inhumaneslaughter of horses.Inhumane slaughter of animalsis not something that is specificto horses: it is an issue which hasoften come up in factory farmingtime and time again. It is difficult tonormally would (about 2 minutes)so that it doesn’t overpower themint. Make sure it’s room temperatureat the very least beforeyou start throwing your ingredientstogether.Crush the mint with the end of awooden spoon to get all the flavourout. As the mint is the best part ofa mojito, don’t you dare remove itbefore serving your drink. Leavethe mint in your glass and serve ithumanely slaughter something, butthe slaughter of horses is seldom differentfrom the slaughter of cows. Ifyou are content to eat a cow knowinghow it was killed and processed,yet the same treatment for a horseis somehow not enough, then thatis your issue, and not necessarilysomething that anyone who eats themeat should be similarly concernedwith. Horses deserve no special reverencesimply for being horses.It is also extremely nearsightedfor this bill to be drafted as it seeksto establish into law what is essentiallya local attitude about the meat,which seems counter to Canada’sreputation as a tolerant, multiculturalnation. Over a billion peoplearound the world eat horsemeat.Another part of the bill highlightsthe potential health hazards of eatinghorsemeat strictly with regardsMarianne Pointnerwith a straw. You’ll thank me later.Squeeze the juice of 1-2 limesinto the glass and add the crushedice.Top it off with some carbonatedwater and stir the mixture to fusethe flavours.Take any leftover lime, quarterit and add it as a garnish to yourdrink.to a theoretical– as yet unproven–potential for horsemeat soldfor human consumption to containdrugs which are administeredto horses raised for sport.What should be taking place isHealth Canada and the CanadianFood Inspection Agency seeking toimpose stricter regulations on theproduction of the meat, especiallyif the threat of drugs or chemicalsunfit for human consumption is areal one.In light of these developmentssurrounding horsemeat, I headedover to our local Dutch Toko onWyndham St. and ordered myselfabout half a pound of cut, smokedhorse loin.The goal, as I said, was to buyfresh or frozen uncooked horsemeat.I wanted to be able to prepare it myself.You can’t really learn anythingOn lazy days add some rum tothe mix and enjoy with friends.Marianne Pointnerby eating precooked food. Since Icouldn’t find it anywhere easilycommutable, I settled for this.I made a sandwich– bread, cheese,pickle, mustard and horse– andate it. It made me sad that one daythis might not be able to take place.Not only because I don’t want mygovernment telling me what mymorals are, but because it tasteddifferent. It didn’t taste like beef,or pork, or chicken. It tasted like, Iguess, horse. It was salty, probablydue to the smoking, but other thanthat, it didn’t taste like other meats.The texture and appearance wasn’tlike other meats.

lifeSex Geek: Sexual health spring cleaningShireen NobleAs the days get warmer and thepromise of summer grows nearer,we’re thrown straight into“spring cleaning” season (or foruniversity students, the “I’ll doanything except actually study formy exam” season). But more importantthan finally cleaning outthat mystery take-out containeror dusting your lamps is to gettingyour sexual health checkedout before heading out on a summerromance.As a sexually active person, it’syour responsibility to make surethat you’re getting checked regularlyfor STIs. Do you still haveto if you don’t show any symptoms?Absolutely. In fact, the mostcommon symptom of an STI is notshowing any symptoms. Unfortunately,the complications that canresult from untreated STIs can beopinionharsh– even leading to infertility.There are some major misunderstandingsabout testing related tosexual health, so let’s review someof the information.First, toutine gynecological testing(“pap smears”) do not includea screening for common STIs likeChlamydia and Gonorrhea. Youhave to request them. So if you’vehad an exam recently, that doesn’tmean that you’ve been tested forSTIs. If you’re not sure, doublecheckwith your doctor.You also need to talk to yourdoctor about your sexual practices.Now, I know this can sound (atbest) a little uncomfortable, butit’s important for your healthcareprofessional to be able to performany tests that might be indicated.For instance, you can contractsome STIs in your throat that yourdoctor might not otherwise knowto test for. Remember, it’s not yourdoctor’s role to judge your sexualpractices; if you do find thatyour doctor judges you, it’s timeto find a new on with whom youcan talk with openly about yoursexual health.Different STIs require differenttests. A full screening forSTIs would include urine testing(or swabs) for STIs like HPV,Chlamydia, and Gonorrhea, andblood testing for HIV and HepatitisB. Unfortunately, herpescan generally only be diagnosedduring an outbreak, not during aroutine exam (so get to a doctorASAP if you suspect you’re havingan outbreak for them to confirm).In order to get your test results,you’ll generally need to book a follow-upappointment.Regardless of the gender of yourpartner, everyone with a cervixneeds regular pap tests. Some STIslike Herpes and HPV can be spreadPutting student fees into perspectiveDrew GarvieLast week an opinion piece entitled“Increasing transparency and accountabilityfor CSA student fees”appeared in The Ontarion. Thisarticle argues that student organizationalfees are a burden onstudents and that they should haveto go through renewed referendumsevery few years. I sincerelyappreciate some of the recommendationsabout communicatingfinances with students more oftenand through all available channels;however, the article’s mistakenemphasis shifts the discussion awayfrom public funding to universitiesand skyrocketing tuition and asksstudents to blame other studentsfor their financial hardship.First of all, it has to be noted thattuition fees are far more undemocraticthan student fees. Studentfees are voted on by referendumby all students at the university.Tuition fees are set by the Board ofGovernors, which means that onlythree student representatives voteon them each year.It is fortunately not true that tuitionfees are “beyond the purview”of the CSA to do anything about,as the article claims. A look at therecent history of tuition fees andstudent organizing demonstratesthat students do have the powerto influence university level andgovernmental policy and fundingdecisions. Right now in Quebec200,000 students continue tostrike– organized through theirstudent unions– in order to reversethe Charest government’s decisionto increase tuition by 75 percent. In 2005, a similar move wassuccessfully defeated by studentson strike in Quebec. In 2004, studentsin Ontario won a tuition feefreeze in this province. Studentsin Newfoundland currently benefitfrom a tuition fee freeze belowthe rate of inflation (which meansa tuition reduction) because theyfought long and hard for it. In severalEuropean and Latin Americancountries, university level educationis free. It is a question ofpolitical priority and students dohave the power to influence thesepriorities. This is why the CSA continuesto advocate for accessible,quality, fully public education. Ifthere was no hope, we wouldn’tkeep talking to a brick wall.The author correctly differentiatesbetween “compulsoryuniversity fees” and “student organizationalfees,” however theconclusions leave out part of thepicture. It is absolutely true that“compulsory university fees” gotowards paying for services thatstudents enjoy on campus. However,CSA policy states that “theCentral Student Association believesthat ancillary fees levied bythe University of Guelph to payfor certain programs and servicesare a regressive form of universityfunding. The CSA believes that it isthe university’s responsibility tofund programs and services thatare controlled by the universityadministration.”Fees and services such as theAthletic Fee, the Athletic BuildingFee, the Health Services Fee,the Co-operative Education andCareer services program, and theCentre for International Programsare all enjoyed by students, just asthe author describes. So what is ourpolicy getting at? Well, aren’t someof these more than “nice to haves”on campus? Shouldn’t students expecta gym, a decent health careprovider and offices that can giveadvice on international placementsand careers on campus? What isgoing on here is that the Universityhas downloaded the costs ofthese essentials onto the backs ofstudents. It is the CSA stance thatthese services should eventuallybe paid for by the university’soperating budget, which ought tobe publicly funded, not privatizedpiecemeal.Moving on now to “student organizationalfees,” many of whichthe CSA oversees and distributes.These fees, as well as student compulsoryfees are not decided by theBoard of Governors (like tuitionfees) but are decided by studentsthrough referendum. The majordifference between student organizationalfees and compulsoryuniversity fees is that student organizationalfees are run by students,for students. This means they arenot only democratically decidedon, but that they are democraticallyadministered.Can students do a better job ofinforming students what exactlytheir fees are being spent on?Probably, yes. And some of the author’ssuggestions about easier toaccess information should be followedup on by the CSA and otherstudent organizations. There werequestions raised in the article aboutthe student bus pass and the CFS/CFS-O fee. We will certainly tryand communicate what’s going onwith these fees to students and areopen to suggestions. In the meantimeyou can contact email@example.com if you have questions167.13 ◆ april 12th, 201215from skin-to-skin contact, so evenif you’re not having penetrativesex, it’s important to be tested.It’s also important to talk to yourdoctor about other sexual healthconcerns, not just STIs, such aserectile dysfunction, painful intercourse,or low libido. These mightbe symptoms of other physicalhealth issues and can help yourdoctor to identify these concerns.And if it’s not something physical,your doctor should be ableto provide you with a referral toa specialist who can assist withissues.Undoubtedly STI testing (andany else related to sexual health)can be really nerve-racking, sotry and make sure you’re as comfortableas possible. Particularly ifyou’re booking an appointmentwith Student Health Services,you can request the genderof your doctor (if that will makeabout any CSA administered fee.However, to think that studentorganizational fees are a burdenon students in the same way thattuition and compulsory fees aremisses a real understanding ofdemocracy, the right to autonomousstudent organizing and thereal threat of privatization.Finally, the article makes theclaim that CSA commissionersalaries are a burden on students.Youth unemployment in Canadais double the overall average,which is already high. The jobs wedo get as university grads are toooften not in our field, underpaidand part-time. So when a studentrepresentative makes $20,000 to$30,000 a year, it is easy to understandwhy that is enviable. Untilrelatively recently, commissionersat the CSA made under $20,000a year. It was found that this wasa barrier to many students whowould have run for election but thesalary was just not high enough tolive and pay off student loans (oftencommissioners are recent graduates).These are full-time positionsthat are still under $15 an hour,which is considered a “living wage”Medium8 Item Pizza$9.99 plus tax!*Delivery Charges Apply*you more comfortable). You canusually bring a friend along forsupport, but make sure that ifthey’re going to stay in the roomwith you, you feel comfortableanswering the doctor or nurse’squestions truthfully and accurately.It would suck if you had to doit all again because you were embarrassedto talk about your sexlife in front of your BFF.And finally, feel free to communicateyour concerns with yourdoctor and ask them to explainwhat they’re doing. It’s your body,and you need to feel safe withwhoever is examining you.To make arrangements to gettested, you can contact StudentHealth Services (ext. 52131) or contactWellington-Dufferin-GuelphPublic Health (1-800-265-7293) tofind a location that works for you.by many anti-poverty activists. Weshould be fighting for decent jobsand wages for each other and notasking our own elected representativesto try and find part-timework on the side when they arealready employed full-time by us.If an individual commissioner isin the financial position that theydo not need the entire salary, thenthey should absolutely donate it tothe place of their choosing. But thisis an individual choice. Is it a burdento students that the Presidentof the University makes almost halfa million a year?On the whole, the article on “accountability”seems to shift theblame onto student organizations,which are some of the only toolsthat we have to demand real accountabilityand debt relief fromgovernments and the university.I encourage students not to jumpon the “anti-gravy train,” but torealize the considerable financialchallenges we face as students, andto fight for our real interests.Drew Garvie is the CSA communicationsand corporateaffairs commissioner265 Eramosa Rd.Guelph, ON519.829.2828

167.13 ◆ april 12th, 2012editorial 17The Ontarion Inc.The importance of student newspapersThere is a specific responsibilityassociated with student newspapers.Student newspapers shouldcover events that happen on campus,and highlight and recognizethe achievements of students andfaculty here at the University ofGuelph.That falls upon us here atThe Ontarion because, to putit bluntly, no one else will. Theuniversity community is fairlyinclusive, and seldom tends toventure outside of campus intothe community at large. As aresult, much of the accomplishmentsand events which takeplace here on campus may gowithout the recognition that theydeserve.This past year, bias acknowledged,I feel the staff here atThe Ontarion have done a greatjob of finding student accomplishments,whether throughathletics, arts and culture, activism,research or anything else.They communicated with thepeople responsible, and broughtthat information to the studentbody, faculty, and countless otherswho make this campus theirtemporary home.I have been involved with thecampus community throughThe Ontarion in some capacityfor the entirety of my six yearsin Guelph. In that time I havelearned two things, which maybe quite contradictory, but aretrue nonetheless.The first is that student apathyis as alive and well as ever.It has been a regular topic ofarticles, opinion pieces and editorialsin this paper at least forthe many years I’ve been here,likely more. I dread to say it istrue for the majority of studentswithout anything to corroboratethat claim, but at times it certainlyfeels like it. It is tough to findstudents whose passion and commitmentto this school is as strongas one might hope it would be.I, and much of the rest of thestaff here, have attended a countlessnumber of events, whetherart exhibits, plays, concerts orother musical performances,sporting events, special lectures,the list goes on, and only intermittentlyare they well-attended.The majority of them only see asparse number of attendees.However, I don’t want to focuson this. I’d rather focus on somethingthat I feel, as staff membershere at the paper, we have moreawareness of than other students.It’s something I’ve alreadymentioned: we’ve attended artexhibits, plays, concerts andother musical performances,sporting events, special lecturesand the list goes on. While someof these events may not be wellattended, students cared enoughto organize them. That counts forsomething.While I do get a sense of disappointmentwhen I think aboutstudent apathy, I am filled withmore pride in my school and thestudents that go here when Isee that these events take place,and take place in abundance.This is a campus with such ahugely diverse body of studentswith a diverse amount of interests,which manifests itself in aphenomenally impressive waythrough these kinds of events. Althoughit’s easy to find studentswho don’t care, there are enoughstudents at this university who dogive a damn to keep the pages ofthis paper full week after week,year after year. We need look nofurther than our own weeklyvolunteer contributors list to bereminded that there are plenty ofstudents who do care.The Ontarion isn’t just aboutbringing attention to individualstudents, teams or events; it’sabout demonstrating that thiscampus is a culturally productiveenvironment, with people whoare working to make it a strong,involved community. This newspapershould be a manifestation ofthat. From my experiences thesepast few years, I genuinely thinkit is.lettersThe article “Everything Comics...”was just brought to myattention. I’m saddened to hearabout Morris’ experience in mystore, which certainly contradictsour established reputationas a positive shopping experiencefor women. We have clearlylaid out our position on the roleof women in comics and comicstores in the paper “Women inComics” written by Amy (themanager) and I. We have presentedthis paper at events forOut on the Shelf, GRCGED, andKazoo Zine and Comic Expo.You can read it on our website,here: http://thedragonweb.com/womenincomics.htmlJennifer Haines (M.A., B.Ed., OCT)The Dragon, Old Quebec StreetShoppesUniversity CentreRoom 264University of GuelphN1G 2W1ontarion@uoguelph.caPhone:519-824-4120General: x58265Editorial: x58250Advertising: x58267Accounts: x53534Fax: 519-824-7838Editorial Staff:Editor-in-chiefDuncan Day-MyronSports & Health EditorSasha OdesseArts & Culture EditorTom BeedhamNews EditorBeth Purdon-McLellanWeb EditorBakz AwanAssociate EditorDivinus C.
